Recently had brunch with a group of 10 family members. Large meals. Food was good. The cafe has a large covered deck which is lovely to sit at even on a rainy day like the day we were there.

A great place to spend time with animals and nature. The Japanese gardens are beautiful with lots of running water. The dingo pups are a delight. A visit to the cafe is a must for good coffee and food.
